    Hang in there A-Squared. I really love hanging out with my kids now we're moving beyond imaginary games and tantrums and constantly in each other's pockets. There's always worries and challenges, but this part of parenting is nice!

    4. Go to cafes / restaurants as a family? Once in a blue moon

    1. Let your kids use the iPad / iPhone / tablet / smart phone?

    We don't time them, but we let them go on them a little while and when it feels like they've had enough (in our opinion), we boot them off.

    2. Take your kids to the playground?

    A few times a year. We live on 85 acres, plenty of space!

    3. Have take away as a family?

    A few times a year.

    4. Go to cafes / restaurants as a family?

    A few times a year.

    5. Go out by yourself with friends?

    A handful of times a year.

    6. Does your Other Half go out by themselves / friends?

    Never

    7. Go on holidays by yourself / with friends?

    Never

    8. Go on holiday with your other half And leave the kids?

    DP and I get every second weekend kid free, but we've only gone away a few times on those weekends. We have so much to keep us busy on the farm that we tend to spend our kid free weekends working together here. I'd like to aim for one trip away together alone each year.

    9. Sit and read a book / surf the web / do a hobby at home while your kids entertain themselves

    A few days a week. Rarely on weekends though

    10. Cook dinner vs your other half?

    Now that I'm not working I always cook.

    And 11. How old are your kids?

    4, 9, 9, 13 & 15
